Note 1: This merely translates what the document said. Not all prisoners listed were held at Neudeck before the trial. Some were at Cornelius Street Prison, some at Stadelheim. This document also proves that Traute Lafrenz, Gisela Schertling, and Katharina Schüddekopf were not served.

Note too that in the body of the document below the listing, Eugen Grimminger is listed as Cornelius Street Prison, not Neudeck.
